We are very pleased to make you aware of Beat the Street, which is an exciting project to encourage children and families to become more active. Beat the Street is a fun free activity where people are rewarded with points and prizes for exploring their town on foot or bicycle.
The programme uses advanced smartcard and online technology to run a walking and cycling competition that captures imagination and acts as a catalyst to create a social norm around moving. Sixty special sensors called ‘Beat Boxes’ will appear near your school and across central and North Leicester. Players tap the Beat Boxes with cards and fobs to track their journey and earn points for themselves and their team – the more Beat Boxes people swipe during a journey, the more points they earn! This is total free (funded by public health) children will receive information and fob.
During the game residents record their distance walked by tapping their Beat the Street cards on Beat Boxes on lamp posts at various locations, watching their total distance accumulate creating competition and rediscovering their area. The project will take place between 13 March – 24 April 2019.
Key objectives can be shaped dependent upon specific local and partner needs, but as a guideline Beat the Street aims:
· To increase the level of activity amongst participants
· To enhance levels of well-being and community cohesion.
· To increase the popularity of walking and cycling.
· To reduce the use of cars for short journeys.

Our children & The Eco Enforcers took part in a local event raising awareness to the litter problem!
In partnership with Wrigley and Keep Britain Tidy organisations, 15 schools took part in tidying up spots in Leicester.
Lots of children helped tidy our school grounds, with the help of parks officers, and then the Eco Enforcers went and litter picked a 'grot spot' by the canal and Talbot park.
Later that day some students from Moat Community College joined us, and we walked to Abbey Park.
At the park all rubbish from the 15 schools were delivered and it was astonishing!
Children and students met with Lee Jowett lead Eco coordinator, Karyn Fullerton (Keep Britain Tidy) and Filbert Fox!
Well done to all that took part in the event, well done Belgrave for all your help to making a difference!
We had a great time for a great cause and we have made a difference!

Eco - Warriors are to support selling rice at an event after school: Monday November 28th 2016.
This is to help farmers and villagers in Malawi (Africa), to have better life outcomes.
The bags of rice are at a cost of £3 per kg, and everyone that can support this would be offering a child an opportunity to attend school.

The children have been working on sharing information with you and are also involved in a 'challenge' which you will be made aware of very soon!!!
What an amazing day we had at The Eco-Conference, it was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
The pupils will share a report with you very soon about their day!
The Eco-Warriors are to attend the annual Eco-Conference Thursday December 11th, which is being held at the National Space Centre. Workshops we are to attend: Just FairTrade, Be Science, Food for Life and Sustrans.
The children will be able to gain further knowledge to share with others including parents/carers.
The Eco-Warriors visited Wastecycle learning more about recycling, specifically where our school rubbish is processed and where it goes and becomes after collection. The children were presented with high-visibility jackets with the school name on. Thanks Steve Jackson this was made possible and the children gain further knowledge to support Eco- Schools Programme.
As part of the 'Eco-Education' the Eco-Warriors have been active in addressing some of our local issues. Since last year we have focussed on litter/recycling. The whole school have been involved in making positive changes around school with litter picking. The pupils have been successful with negotiating our recycling system in school with Wastecycle; who provide our recycle bins and collect our waste fortnightly.
The Eco-Warriors are to visit Wastecycle, November 9th 2015 to understand how our waste is sorted and recycled on a grand scale and to share this information with staff and pupils.
Welcome back to our new year and congratulations to the Eco Warriors on achieving their
We look forward to more successes this year and gaining new experiences & skills.
Our theme is 'Recycling & litter' and we now have recycle bins in each class and area, courtesy of Wastecycle. Pupils will help to manage the litter within school, by weekly litter picking, but are asking for you to be more aware of how you are disposing your rubbish!
